Another name is: "Vidunderlig" cracker :)
I just put my crackers back in the oven for the 45 min suggested.........uh...did I mention that I need to work on patting the dough a little more evenly next time? As a result some of my crackers were a smidgen thin around the edges (what a shame cuz' now I can taste them early) I'm sort of glad the "Mr." is at work tonight because when they cool - I can have them all to myself :) :)

"Vidunderlige knekkebrød" (wonderful crackers) it would be in norwegian. :):):)
But you can call them whatever you like, I`m just glad you like them.
I love them for several reasons;
1) I can really enjoy them allthough I have D
2) When friends comes, it is nice to be able to give them something they think is really yummi, allthough I also can eat it.
3) It is easy to take some with me on trips

These Vidunderlige knekkebrød will be perfect for me to take with me when my husband and I go to the food market. There is a HUGE market about 25 minutes from our home and it takes much walking just to go through the entire store. Almost every time we shop for food I end up with very low blood sugar numbers.

These crackers make good "cereal" too

I got around to crumbling these up with nuts for my occasional bowl of "cereal", and it's as good or better than Dr. Bernstein's GG crackers. Maybe we should alert him to these, y'think?! :D

Anyhow, I amended the GG granola recipe to include this option.

lol . . . now you've got me saying "why didn't I think of that?!" Mine have definitely been uneven & I didn't particularly mind, but rolling between parchment pages is ideal.

I just gotta stop sprinkling them with cinnamon & xylitol . . . I can eat the whole batch in one afternoon & then there's none left for the cheese spreads. :( :rolleyes:

oh my first lot stuck to everything...lol...

um I was thinking flavouring them with sugarfree maple syrup and vanilla....

I also read you can grind sesame seeds and use it as a flour...

I LOVE food lol

Optimist...do you think the psyllium husks could be substituted with chia seeds? I'm a little afraid to use the psyllium husks because I have enough things that set me off to the bathroom, so I really don't want to have something that I KNOW will send me there. What do you think? I don't know if you have any knowledge of the chia seeds. Just curious.

I wish you lived nearby as I'd give you a few of mine to taste. The psyllium is a very small part of it, I'd go ahead and try it the way she tells. I've bought some chia seeds, but have yet to use them.

Unless you ate the entire batch of crackers at one sitting, I doubt you could notice any effect. Are you familiar with how Metamucil works? Same stuff.

The dosage for psyllium husks as a colon cleanse is one tablespoon, administered 1 to 3 times a day. The measure for the entire batch of crackers is two tablespoons. I'd say at least try it without tweaking it. I think you'll be surprised.

You can, Bugg . . . in the spice aisle. But you'll need several small bottles. Walmart doesn't sell it in bulk that I know of.

I`ve never used or eaten chia seeds, so I can really not tell how it will taste in the crackers, but ypu can try it. maybe split the recipe in half and test how it is?
I use psyllium in different stuff, but have never had trouble with it, although I have a stomach which give me lots of trouble with many kind of food.

I have a dumb question...but, save me some time and effort, please. I have the recipe in a couple of places, but on one I wrote "3/4 cup" almond flour and in the other I wrote '1 cup'. What are y'all using?

I've still been weighing mine for 3½ oz., but I think it's about 2/3 to 3/4 cup. I'll try to remember to measure next time I make 'em, Pat.
